"We're back...and better than ever!" the theater announced on its Facebook page.
The Esquire, which originally opened in 1927 as the Hiawatha Theatre, has been run by Landmark since 1980. The historic — and uncomfortable — seats have been removed and replaced.
"Be sure to come in and check out our modern, comfortable seats and improved theatre-going experience," Landmark posted to the Esquire page.
A picture posted to the theater's Facebook page shows cushy seats with cup holders — the kind of creature comforts offered by AMC and other bigger chains but rarely seen in historic theaters.
Tickets, according to the Esquire's social-media feeds, are likely to go on sale June 10.
